Hayim Layeled
Nothing so essential is as taken for granted as the air we breathe. Unfortunately, for children with CF (cystic fibrosis), breathing is both difficult and restricted. No one will ever forget the words of a CF child who upon regaining consciousness after a lung-transplant operation said with wonder, "I never knew air tasted so sweet!"
Every summer Hayim Layeled sponsors a three-week long medical camp in Switzerland for children from Israel and their families. The flight, including the large load of cargo needed, is of course provided by EL AL with special sensitivity and with wonderful service.

The Association for the Wellbeing of Israel's Soldiers (AWIS)
Friends of the IDF is the leading organization in Israel working for the wellbeing of Israel Defense Force soldiers and for the individual soldier.
The association, both volunteers and employees, work year-round to support, assist and fulfill the needs of soldiers – whatever they may be – through many projects, such as:
active vacations, fun days, constructing activity centers, synagogues and clubs, education and assistance, scholarships for soldiers, aid to lone soldiers (without families) and to families in distress.
In addition, the association finances approximately 700 flights a year for lone soldiers to visit their families overseas. Lone soldiers in fighting units are entitled to one fully paid flight ticket, including travel insurance and airport taxes. Other lone soldiers are entitled to reduced price tickets and payment of medical insurance. In special cases and at the request of the IDF, the association flies families of soldiers to Israel.
All of these are only a small part of the extensive and varied activities for IDF soldiers.

"When a mother is seriously ill, it is so difficult, both financially and emotionally, besides the physical pain and weakness. Luckily, I was put in touch with Ezer Mizion, an organization that gives me the strength to keep going and to envision a tomorrow, the strength to yearn. The trip to London, right in the middle of my treatments, was an unforgettable experience. To this day, I feel a boost of energy every time I think of the marvelous moments, the adventure. The trip helped me shed my burdens. It nourished me and enabled a glimmer of happiness to enter into my sea of boundless pain".

Racheli Cohen from Holon, mother of four and stricken with cancer, participated in the five day trip to London coordinated by Ezer Mizion.
Ezer Mizion, Israel Prize recipient in 2008, has been active for many years now, easing the burden of the ill and handicapped in Israel. Among its diverse services, Ezer Mizion runs a broad spectrum of projects and special programs that support children with cancer and their families. Another unique project offers encouragement, support and assistance to young mothers suffering from cancer and to their family members.
The initiative for this important project stems from the recognition of the additional  stress these mothers experience in coping with their illness. At Ezer Mizion, we try to provide the ill mothers and their families with all necessary help, as well as occasional moments of joy and pleasure, all offered with the maximum attention, warmth and love.
Supporting young mothers with cancer is an opportunity for you to make a real impact on the lives of mothers with cancer and that of their husbands and children. The points you donate to Ezer Mizion will enable us to provide a dream vacation for them that will fill them with renewed energy to fight their illness – and prevail!

Apart from the challenge and the scientific and logistic gains, the competition offers monetary prizes of thirty million dollars. Space IL, a nonprofit association, has promised to donate prize money to the advancement of technological and scientific education in Israel.
